I have worked within the community to better the connections between all of us. I grew up in DC and Virginia, and my family relocated back to Iowa in the 90s after my father retired from the Army. My family, on both sides, has been involved in Des Moines going back decades with our roots going back to Germany and Switzerland. Many of my family came through Ellis Island.
I graduated from Roosevelt High School, Grand View University, and Drake University. I have served in the Iowa Army National Guard and Army Reserve. My background includes property management, security, and political campaigns. I’ve been a Freemason, Shriner, and done other charity work as well.
I enjoy motorcycles and movies as hobbies.
